Mt Ruapehu offers best season pass price in over a decade

Mt Ruapehu receives overwhelming response on first day of season pass sale

MT RUAPEHU 28 SEPTEMBER 2017: Mt Ruapehu has unveiled its new Season Pass prices for 2018 and the response has been overwhelming.

With the company’s best Season Pass price in over a decade on offer, saw a record amount of daily traffic on the first day of the sale, recording over 14,000 page views in the sale’s first 24 hours. The first Facebook post promoting the sale reached 130,000 in 24 hours, gaining 38,000 views and 2,300 comments, shares and reactions.

Mt Ruapehu Marketing Manager Matt McIvor says, “Whakapapa & Turoa are the largest ski destinations easily accessible to North Islanders, so we wanted to make sure that a season of skiing or snowboarding is within reach for everyday New Zealanders and families. We also wanted to offer the same reach for tertiary students, re-introducing an even lower Season Pass price exclusively for them.

“We want to get everyone excited about having fun on the mountain and we believe these price points will achieve that. All of us are so passionate about playing on this mountain and we want to share that with our guests more often, especially with the new developments completed this year and planned for the near future.”

The current low Season Pass prices end on November 30, when they are scheduled to go up incrementally every month until the opening of the 2018 Winter Season. Current prices are:

Adults $349

Youth (5-17 yrs) $249

Child (5-10 yrs bought with adult pass) $49

Student $249

Infant (0-4 yrs) FREE

Super Super (70+ yrs) FREE

The passes offer unlimited skiing and snowboarding at Whakapapa and Turoa Ski Areas for the 2018 Winter Season with no close-out dates and can be used during the last week of the 2017 season from October 16-23. They come with a range of additional benefits including 10% off a range of on-mountain products and services and four half price Buddy Day Passes to share with friends. Optional extras are also available for Night Skiing, First Tracks and Platinum services.

Howard Davis Review: Smelling the Merchandise - The Death of Stalin

Having satirised British democracy with such devastating effect, Armando Iannucci has now turned his lens on the dangers inherent in Soviet authoritarianism. Every gag is girdled with fear and the bleak humour is so pitch black it could only have been pumped from deep underground. More>>

"You only get a singer like this once in a generation or two," commented Wynton Marsalis, who has repeatedly hired her to front his jazz orchestra and mounted a 25 foot high portrait of her on the exterior of Lincoln Center. “She radiates authority. She has poise, elegance, soul, humour, sensuality, power, virtuosity, range, insight, intelligence, depth, and grace.” More>>

To be good at one thing is impressive; to be so versatile across a range of genres is truly exceptional.
